welcome to the blog

This blog was the beginning of my own yellow brick road back in 2006. When I first started taking photos and writing about beauty in my midst — every day for an entire year — I had no idea how it would change my world, lift my spirits and offer a pathway into becoming a creative, intuitive entrepreneur. I feel so blessed to work as an artist, writer and mentor from my home studio (we call it the dudio, since it was originally a dining room!). It’s true — there’s no place like home. 

When I’ve got more to say than an Instagram post can hold, I love using this space to share stories about my art, the angels, braving cancer and hardship, and about honoring the magic around us and within us. So happy you’re here!
